Despite the benefits of physical activity, women are less physically active than men in most areas. The transtheoretical model is known as a comprehensive model in the field of sport. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between self-efficacy with physical activity stages of change among housewives. In the cross-sectional study, 220 housewives aged 19 to 52 were studied. Sampling of the first block was done through simple random method then sampling continued in other blocks according to sampling number by referring to the doors of the houses and those who wished, entered into the study until the sampling was completed. Data collection was performed by a researcher-made questionnaire whose academic value was determined by content validity, and its reliability was determined by Cronbach's alpha. Data analysis was carried out by SPSS - 18. The results of this study showed that self-efficacy could predict physical activity stages of change. 5.5% of the participants were at pre-contemplation level, 44.1% at contemplation level, 38.6% at preparation level, 4.1% at action level, and 7.7% were at maintenance level. Significant differences were observed between self-efficacy and stages of change (P<0/001) and self-efficacy and education level (P<0.05) but no significant difference was observed between self-efficacy and age. According to the results of the study, self-efficacy had a significant impact on physical activity engagements therefore, practical actions should be taken to enhance self-efficacy by relevant institutions.
